Investment approach
  • To assist the Fund in meeting its daily liquidity requirements, the Fund will have substantial investments in highly rated securities that can be easily liquidated on a same day basis.
  • Invests primarily in deposits and loans issued by banks, ADI’s and other highly rated securities that it considers can be easily liquidated on a same day basis.
  • Uses a combination of diversified investment strategies to generate excess returns and manage risk for the portfolio. These strategies include liquidity management, yield curve positioning and duration positioning (outlined above).
  • Derivatives, such as bank bill futures, may be used up to a maximum of 20% of the Fund’s net asset value. Only covered derivatives may be used.
  • The Fund will not use leverage or short selling strategies.
  • May use other strategies, as determined appropriate, with regard to achieving the Fund’s objective.

To implement the investment strategy above, the Fund can invest in securities directly, or through funds managed by Antares consistent with the investment objective and approach.

Risks Risks specific to investments in fixed income instruments may include credit and default risk (ie  the risk that the issuer of security owned by the relevant fund may not meet their obligations to make interest payments, the repayment of capital or both), interest rate risk (the value of the relevant Fund’s investments may be sensitive to changes to interest rates),inflation risk (the risk of inflation being higher than anticipated), and liquidity risk (the risk of not being able to find a buyer in a timely manner).
